Chihei Hatakeyama (畠山地平) is a sound artist and musician living on the outskirts of Tokyo. Hatakeyama’s music is characteristically very slow, composed by repeatedly processing guitars, pianos, and vibraphones on a laptop. The result is a mix of droning chords and sparse single instruments rising above the mix. His music may be classified as either post-ambient experimental music or new-age music. Chihei Hatakeyama has released over 19 albums as of 2013 including a 12″ split with Vida Vojic on First Terrace Records in 2018.
Joel Gilardini is an experimental guitarist and sound designer, based in Zurich. Being a self-tough guitarist, and driven by the urge and the will to experiment with sounds, Joel followed a very peculiar path which lead him over a broad range of sound fields, touching different musical attitudes and genres like metal, ambient, doom, dub, and noise. By using live‐looping, improvisation and instant composition techniques, Joel creates a very unique biosphere, where these elements are constantly blended together, giving birth and shape to continuously morphing soundscapes and moods.Pre-Release-Show of his new album: Against Heatwaves
